Last news Junior
The former Betis man did not recover in time for the match and Jordi Alba is targeting a 'Clasico' return. Sergino Dest, a right back, is set to start v Getafe on the opposite flank.
Both players were included on the shortlist of players to leave Barcelona, but a twist in the tale means that they will stay at Koeman's request. The market will close this Monday and there are no possible deals on the horizon.
Junior Firpo could try his luck in Serie A. According to the Italian press, Atalanta are interested in the Barca left-back. 'TMW' reports that the footballer's agent will head to Bergamo to speak about his possible move.
Barca have gotten to work to make a profound change in their squad, a change that involves the immediate departure of seven players. The newspaper 'AS' has already put a name and surname to them: Arthur, Junior, Rakitic, Braithwaite, Umtiti, Arturo Vidal and Dembélé.
The future of Junior Firpo could pass through Italy, although not precisely through Inter as had been discussed recently. According to 'Sport Mediaset', Antonio Conte could have discarded the FC Barcelona defender. Napoli, says 'Il Mattino', would be interested in making room for the former Betis player.
'Mundo Deportivo' informs that, if Junior Firpo ends up being part of 'Operation Lautaro' and signs for Inter, he would earn more than double what he is on at Barcelona. It is one of the reasons why the defender has accepted the situation.
In the heat of the season and with the transfer window open, Barcelona have begun to think about possible exits. Junior Firpo could be the next one: Inter Milan have reportedly accepted Barcelona's offer to add him in the signing for Lautaro Martinez.
Barcelona are on yellow alert, that hackneyed expression used in football journalism to warn that they have players one yellow away from a ban. Messi, Suárez, Piqué, Arturo Vidal, Braithwaite, Junior, and Rakitic are in that situation.
Inter Milan have thrown a wager on Barcelona in the negotiations for the transfer of Lautaro Martinez. Inter have asked for 85 million euros plus Junior Firpo.
